Ah, a literary man!

Salutations to you, sir!

May your bowels move freely and smoothly...and always remember...."if you plant ice, you're gonna harvest wind!"

(Which is to say: If the dew is what's irritating your innards and making you so miserable, may it roll away at once and for all :-)

Okay, three literary questions for you: what did Ed Abbey say you should do with your garbage? What was the Judge's favorite shirt color? What is "Young Men and Fire" really about?

Like WT is your real name. Typical liberal response. And the correct question back would have been African or European. You play fair with me.

Ignorance is fairplay.

Okay, I answered one of yours, failed the other--but tried; gave you the third in this world--who are you to say it isn't my "real" name?

What have you done for me, eh?

That's not fair. You're the lesser for it. Do you read anything or just watch Monty Python re-runs? How many PHDs do you have? How many jobs? Well, okay, that's not fair--just answer my first three questions since I cooperated with you, k? Then we can be friends.

Ohhh--that robin beats my swallow any day! Good shot...now, I have to ask, BBB, do you have an interest in ornithology to have known about the genus name being so useful to you in this humorous post of yours, or just happenstance?

Just an avid birdwatcher these days. B.S. in Biology minor chem.. I would take bird courses as electives.

I just couldnt resist, hate to see my beloved Python used so shabbly.

BTW I watched the Stegner PBS show also. Very good. Of all the conservationists I'm least well read on him. Must change that.

Well thanks for the outstanding support! Much better than my tweety bird. And, like you, I love MPython, and was responding to quickly or I would have gotten it right...damn.

There are lots to choose from, as they covered in the show, and of course, I just stole most of my quotes from him/there in my few posts about him today...100th Merid was the first of his, and my fav, but that has a lot to do with being a desert rat myself. I knew a fair bit about him, but hadn't realized til the show how many folks he influenced.

Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed that program.

I was a bit quick also. I should try to not post from work.

More important than irregular's very unwitty use of MPython, is the shabby treatment of JOTS post.
Good luck JOTS, throw in a bone when ya can.

Thanks for the Stegner input. One of his Collected stories look good to start with. Arid Lands looks intersting, Id like to know more about Powell. I miss the desert. I used to hike the Superstitions alot as a teenager.

Turdus Migratorius was the first scientific, taxonomy, bird name I learned from grandpa. So funny to a little boy made it easy to remember. I only remember a couple dozen scientific names these days.

Older brothers always torture younger ones, especially when they are little turds. He is much bigger than me now, however, I still have the intimidation factor on my side. And always will. I just love the big fella.

Caught my daughter dancing to Birdsong this morning. Pretty cool.

Ah, one of my favs around here (SW). Blake phoebe. Love that name too, "phoebe" for gals or birds...Say's phoebe is another pretty one we see a lot of here. Nice little flycatchers with big mouths, though inclined to stuff them with flying insects rather than spouting off...

We love the name too. It fits her very well. High metabolism and eats well. No Phoebe's in these parts (NW Ca.) Great abundance of water fowl though, my main avian interest. Funny thing, I have noticed women like the Phoebe name more than men. We seem to be the exception.
Have a great weekend.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Three great authors + One more...

OK, too long between responses so I assume you are busy using "wiki" to come up with answers.

In all seriousness, though, my response was entirely sincere. I think that Abbey, McCarthy and Maclean are three very important American authors (sorry, Rob! We'll let you tell us about yours!), and the answers to those three questions are significant.

For Abbey, it is THE conservation question concerning what you do with waste in the consumerist society...For the Judge, it is nonsensical, as he was amaterialistic, and answer would be, "he doesn't care", so merely a device to reference that work of art while tying it into Wallace Stegner, an even more important author, via the title of Blood Meridian, one of Dire's favs...last, for Young Men and Fire, it is about a host of things, conservation related and not, but mostly, it is about brotherhood, and what we share here at the Forum. Right? Chris?
